    I don't think WarTourist has the best of roles in the matter. There has been some criticism on things he's said in the past. However, he's probably the only person that has really exchanged views with the public on a one-to-one level (which is good imo). I've also realized that, in a manner of speaking, he has sometimes been between the hammer and anvil at times.

    If anything, it is the transformation of Epic into a business that has led to some distance between fans and the franchise. In short, WarTourist or someone else can say one thing and an internal decision goes the other way, introducing a load of "red tape" with no further information being given out.

    At least, that is my interpretation of the question.

    Same could be said about the PC to a lesser extent.

    Just stop posting already. Geez. If you have something worthwhile to contribute, by all means, do so. If you're just going to continue this worthless and pointless vendetta against me, go find a new hobby.

    A serious charge.

    If that is what you believe then I suggest that you report the matter to one of the other administrators.

    What else could you call it in this thread? Besides, it's not against the rules to make stupid posts, else half of the forum would be banned by now (if not more :p).

    I'd suggest consulting a dictionary before you describe anything in this thread as "vendetta". You might well find that the word was ill-chosen.

    Either that, or cut back on those triple-shot lattes.

    This is getting boring. Use PMs. Annoying to see this thread being marked as having a new post just to find out it is another useless rant by you.

    If a Linux/Mac port happens then it happens, if it doesn't well gee whiz then it doesn't, go cry about somewhere else.

    They are saying that UT4 or any other sequel is on hold. Free content releases and updates for UT3 are still possible.

    Not very likely, even if it is in the realm of possibility. Epic is looking to do more work on Gears and new IP, which they said so themselves. They are more likely trying to wash their hand off the Unreal franchise for a long time. They'll probably finish off the MSUs and what not for now, and then have nothing until they find the heart for UT4 or Unreal 3.
